Psychologist – Primary Care Behavioral Health

This position is integrated into a Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) and hospital setting in Glencoe, MN. Licensed Psychologists report to the Program Manager.

  • Job Title: Psychologist – Primary Care Behavioral Health
  • Direct Supervisor: PCBH Program Manager
  • Compensation: $102,214.29 - $121,142.86 annually, depending on program fit and qualifications
  • Location: Glencoe, Minnesota

Lorenz Clinic is seeking Licensed Psychologists to add to our growing Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) team! The position is full-time and will provide clinical services in a clinic- and hospital-based PCBH program in Glencoe, MN.  A doctoral degree in psychology and independent licensure is required.

The Clinic

Lorenz Clinic is a group private practice focused on the mental health needs of children, families, and adults. While the majority of our services are provided under the umbrella of managed care, we have community partnerships that allow us to service those without insurance. Located on the edge of the Minneapolis Metropolitan area, our six locations (Victoria, Chaska, Prior Lake, Rosemount, Wayzata, and now Glencoe) are located on the edge of the Minneapolis Metropolitan area, providing needed access to psychological services for both suburban and rural communities. In addition to its overall clinical mission, the clinic hosts a clinical training program. The clinic is actively developing a vertically-integrated model of care that includes home-based, outpatient, day treatment, medication management, and PCBH.  Psychologists with special competency with PCBH, children or families as well as bilingual candidates are especially encouraged to apply.

Some aspects of this position can be performed remotely, though the PCBH aspect of the position requires in-person care and professional collaboration.

The Position

Licensed Psychologists report to the Outpatient Program Manager. This position will include carrying a caseload of psychotherapy clients in addition to providing intermittent consultation to primary care physicians.  Job duties include but are not limited to:

  • Carrying patient caseload as defined by clinic
  • The provision of psychological services including conducting diagnostic assessments, treatment planning, psychotherapy, psychological testing, and discharge planning for patients of the clinic
  • The provision of clinical and administrative supervision as requested by Training Director
  • Attending and participating in monthly case consultation, Grand Rounds, business meetings, and other meetings as required by Clinic
  • Compliance with clinic documentation standards
  • Compliance with licensing board rules and APA Code of Ethics
  • Maintain professionalism in all interactions with staff, patients, and business associates of clinic
  • Assisting in intermittent peer reviews of patient files
  • Adherence to directives by Leadership Team and other duties as assigned

The Training Program

A major highlight about Lorenz Clinic is that it is a training system. Our existing training program includes a master’s-level family therapy practicum placement, a post-master’s fellowship, and a postdoctoral psychology fellowship. The training program hosts a vibrant invited practitioner speaker series in addition to monthly grand rounds. Because the training program is an outgrowth of our fierce dedication to serving the underserved, we offer significantly reduced fee services to those in financial need. The clinic has existing relationships with area graduate programs in psychology and family therapy, but we are not beholden to any specific graduate schools. Training rotations are typically 12 months. More information about the larger training program can be found at https://lorenzclinic.com/join-us/education/clinical-training/
